This is Galoway, a 4-year old boy who is being gelded this week and will be ready for a new home in the near future. He has come a long way in the gentling process. He comes right up to you when you visit. He leads well into our barn, enjoys being brushed and has had is feet trimmed. As with all our horses going to a new forever home, he will be freeze-branded (W over H, right hip), will have his wolf teeth removed, will be vaccinated and wormed.
Meet this boy, 3-year old Galihad. Also being gelded this week, he will be looking for a forever home soon. He enjoys brushing when he is in the barn. As you can see one of our volunteers has been braiding his lovely mane.
This is 4-year old Gizmo. He is smaller than his buddies, more pony-sized. He has become very happy when in the barn to have volunteers brush and braid his long mane. He has become very friendly with some children too, who under their parent’s supervision, have spent time fussing over him.
Geronimo is buddies with Galaway and has also progressed very well in his gentling process. He comes right up to you when you visit looking for some rubs and scratches. He leads well into the barn, enjoys brushing and has started to have his feet worked on by our volunteer farrier. He will be gelded this week and available to go to his new forever home very soon. We are so happy to say that he has just been ADOPTED and will be going to his new home soon.
This is our 3-year old filly, Ella. She has just been brought in to begin her gentling process. She is progressing but still needs a little bit of work. She goes into the barn to be fed and brushed. She leads well and will be freeze-branded before she leaves as is required of all the horses we re-home.
This is Fargo, a 4-year old. Our volunteers have been working with him for a quite awhile. He has been saddled and ridden, a wonderful horse that has come to enjoy his human company. Because of this additional training, our normal adoption fee does not apply.
WHOAS has an application process and we are extremely careful in who we choose to adopt from us. This is to ensure the welfare of the horse and that he/she will go to a kind and loving home. We encourage interested parties to arrange to come and visit the horses we have in our care. Do you have a home for one of these beauties? Contact us at WHOASalberta@gmail.com. The application form is found at the top of the website page.
